Event Design & Planning

At COJ Events we specialize in helping create experiences for you and your guests that you will cherish forever!  We provide comprehensive wedding and event design & planning services to guide you in crafting an event that is reflective of your personal style.  We love being your right hand as you navigate through the myriad details involved with planning an authentic and heartfelt event.  We do this through our design expertise, our organizational skills and our joyful approach to managing the details for you!  We truly believe we have the best team in the business that is committed and passionate about bringing your dreams to reality! We are consistently chosen by discerning couples to lead the way on their wedding planning journey.  

Our role encompasses anything and everything involved with planning your event: tapping into your vision to discover the best venue for your ideas; unwrapping your inner style diva to reveal hidden design gems; learning what makes your heart sing and then matching you with elements and vendors that help carry the tune.  Wedding and event planning is organic – every couple is different and every event is different; thus the scope and plan for every event is different.  We build a personalized plan for every event factoring in the size, scope and budget.

We are also tech junkies and love using the latest technology to enhance the planning process: online docs, shared task apps, relevant social media. You can be totally involved in the process or it can be totally transparent to you!

Please contact us for more information and a personalized consultation.
